Last Mass at Lithuanian Church of St. George, Rochester


On June 20, 2010, the last Mass was said at St. George's Lithuanian church in Rochester. The Catholic Courier chronicles this event in an article St. George Celebrates Final Mass on Hudson Street. Unlike the case of Our Lady of Vilnius, the parishioners, vestments and sacramentals will find a new home at the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Brighton.

God bless the parishioners of St. George in this bittersweet moment, losing their house so filled with love, memories and ghosts. May they thrive and continue to serve God and one another in their new home.

Congratulations to Darius and Rasa Laucius on the birth of their son

Pat Sidas, the center of all Lithuanian social news in the New York metropolitan area and elsewhere, published this item in her Apreiskimo Zinios, July edition:
HAPPY, HAPPY NEWS! He’s a BOY! The wonderful Darius and Dr. Rasa Laucis have a SON, Juozas Tomas!

Darius and Rasa attended Our Lady of Vilnius when it was open and were regulars at the cultural events. We missed them after the church closed and moreso after they moved to Detroit. We send congratulations and share in their joy at the birth of Juozas Tomas.
